Our group of gardeners has been growing more produce then members could eat. And as our membership grew, we decided to formalize our decision making process.
We had already been supplying produce for member families and the Carmelite convent, and now we will be providing vegetables for the St. Mary’s food bank and possibly other food banks in the area. We decided to formalize our decision making process, with a three person board directing the activities of the group.
We also decided to focus more on monthly events instead of biweekly work days, and discussed ideas for fundraising and garden planning.
Under the patronage of St. Isidore, we look forward to another great year in 2016! Thanks so much to all those who worked hard getting us to this point!
